UK's First Human ES Cell Line Generated 
UK researchers at King's College in London have made a major breakthrough in the generation of new human embryonic stem (hES) cells. The research has been made possible by some patients undergoing preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) at the Assisted Conception Unit, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, London. Remaining embryos, which may carry disease-causing genes, were used for the generation of the stem cell lines. 

CAMR Urges Bush to Expand Access to ESC’s 
Two years after the President's decision on whether or not to allow federal funding for embryonic stem cell research (August 9, 2001), scientists, patient groups, and universities agree that progress in the US is stalling due to the limited scope of the Administration's policy. The current policy, which allows federal funds to be used only on stem cell lines derived before August 9, 2001, has hindered critical research advances from being made. 

Antinori’s Cloning Consortium: II. Repeated Cloning Claim 
In an interview with Narayani Ganesh of The Times of India, Dr. Severino Antinori last week in Spain said that he soon will publish a detailed report of the progress of a human clone.
